Regarding Standard Township. The name Standard Township is believed to be derived from the location where the Pickering Lumber Company's railroad switched from the narrow gage rail line that brought in raw logs from the timbered mountains to the east onto the standard gage rail line that delivered finished lumber products from the Pickering mill to markets to the west, in the San Joaquin Valley and the San Francisco bay area.
